This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.7, X toolkit)
 of 2001-10-23 on rm50
configured using `configure  --prefix=/lsi/soft/misc'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

In a shell buffer, the new emacs version apparently has no reasonable
way to go to the REAL beginning-of-line.  C-a apparently now does the
same thing in the shell buffer that C-c C-a used to do.

Now the only way to go to the real beginning of line is to do C-p C-a
C-n.

If you want C-a to go to the beginning of line or command prompt, that
seems ok to me, but then make C-c C-a go to the real beginning of line.
